1. Chapter One
Today was a snow day. There was at least two feet of snow. Me and my brother are going down to the town lake. "Hey Snow! Wait up!" my little brother shouted behind me.
So then I stopped in my tracks and looked behind me. He was at least twenty feet behind me on the sidewalk. "Come on. We're almost there Justin." I shouted back to him. Then I started to walk towards him and we finally caught up with each other. Then I took his hand as we walked the rest of the way together.
As we were walking my mind slipped back to what happened early this morning. I could hear my parents shouting downstairs. I couldn't hear what they were yelling about, but I could tell that Mom had threatened to kick Dad out. I had noticed this a couple times before, and each time they had yelled downstairs either early in the morning or late at night. They usually fight when we aren't around. I don't want them to divorce, but I cant control what they do.
Finally up ahead I could see the signs for the lake just barely poking out of the snow. Beyond that there were lots of people out on the ice enjoying their time. I could see Scarlet with her little sister trying to persuade her into skating by the snow.
"Hey Scarlet, do you need help?" I called out.
She looked up at me and shook her head. "No thanks."
"Okay." I replied. I looked at Justin. "Hey, you wanna go get your skates on?" I asked him,
"Yeah!" He replied joyfully. He ran over to a spot in the snow and plopped into the snow. I walked over and started to pull my stuff out of the bag. This is going to be fun...
